Thank You Bobby for Commenting !

And your kind words - like I wrote -(at the same time)- above to Mike - the learning and experimenting continues in order to be able to deliver constant results around macro area.. br Hannu

Dear Hannu, This is a nice capture!...The colour tones are very well and they are really eye-catyching!Good presentation,also!Best regards(Bobby).

Thank You Mike !

For constructive and positive commenting - always grateful of such.

The idea was to capture as much as possible of the many tones of colour of the interior - while trying to find suitable light, camera lens position... The light source is a combination of reflected "golden" sunset light and bounced TTL flash covered partly by my hand - and up to the wooden roof :). This turn out to give one "acceptable" result- but the experiment is still going on:)..  This kind of pearly surfaces are tricky and challenging to "document" - and the result is always a compromise. Underexpose is one trick that will be interesting to try- as that brings sometimes unexpected colour tones from lenses you think you "know".. br Hannu

Hi Hannu,

I like this capture very much.

I have seen colors like this when I hold an oyster shell up to a lamp and turn it slowly. The various angles at which the light impacts the surface cause a wide variety of colors to appear.

It is the iridescence that is so appealing.

My suggestion this that under exposure just a bit more to avoid the highlights on the right side of the image. Perhaps adjusting the light or position of the camera lens would also help.

Best Regards,  Mike
